Ambient Minimal




The last time I did a song that mentioned minimal everyone complained and said it was too busy so I decided to build a song on only two notes. I dumbed down the bassline as much as I could without having a seizure and fought to keep only 2 voices for most of the song. I could not stop myself from adding the synth solo at the end and the piano triads which added another 4 notes.

As for the ambient part, I used recent field recordings that I just added to Freesound over an almost drone like intro. I spent a total of about 30 minutes recording this song with as little editing and processing as possible.

As Keef said, "It's not what you play, but what you don't play" (or words to that effect).

I like this one NoiseCollector. Lots of lovely spaces and gaps to fall though.

That rain did get a bit too busy at the beginning though ;0)

I just want to hear my own heartbeat.

Nah, it's pretty cool. I like the long intro and
then it's very effective when the drums come in.

NIce rain and storm sounds, really rather er uh, ambient.
Somewhere Eno's nose hairs are twitching.
